In 2009, the state legislature passed a law concerning the installation of water conserving plumbing fixtures. Beginning in January 2014 homes that were being remodeled were required to be in compliance by installing water conserving plumbing fixtures prior to receiving final building department approval of the remodeling. Effective January 1, 2017 the law requires that all single-family residences built on or before January 1, 1994 be equipped with water-conserving plumbing fixtures.
Non-compliant fixtures include toilets that use more than 1.6 gallons per flush, shower heads manufactured to use more than 2.5 gallons per minute and interior faucets that emit more than 2.2 gallons per minute.
Installation of water conserving fixtures is not a point of sale requirement, but sellers must disclose whether or not they are in compliance. You can be sure that we will have a form for you to do this!
